Video on arcades in Japan


#1

Not sure if anyone has seen this yet, but I found a short on the arcades of Japan. Here’s the second part that starts out talking about fighters. Even mentions the origin of candy cabinets.

2 things.
1: I think it he put in that Tekken 5 came out in 2001…
2: What was that one game showing shots of a girl in her underwear and sucking on a banana?


#8

so I guess the answer to his question at the end is…

No Fucking Way!!!

The five-second clip he used for DR at 0:30 is probably the most interesting five seconds of Tekken I’ve ever seen, and it looks nothing like how the game is normally played.

Since I do like playing it, I’m not sure if that’s more of a burn on T5 or on me. :lol:

Thanks for the link.

I’ve never been to Japan myself, but a friend who has been a few times sets aside atleast a day of his time there to play in the arcades, and i can see why.

My only memories of arcades was when we went on day trips to the coast when i was a kid, and they were NOTHING like that :rofl: I think it is really sad that arcades don’t have the pull they once did in America and here in the UK because they look like alot of fun and a more social way of gaming, rather than sat at home in front of your TV :sad:
